Welcome Back Kate!

Dear Friend,

Hello polka dot heaven.

Some background: for a few months the Kate Spade store in the Westfield mall on Market Street has been closed. There were signs letting everyone know that they were just getting a facelift and would be back soon, but soon never seems soon enough.

The invitation: There are few things I love more than being invited places. This happens so rarely. Not because I have no life, which is debatable, but mostly because invitations are unfortunately not a real thing anymore. Invitations are such unicorns these days that I take them to be quite the compliment. I will even be flattered by e-vites. Lo and behold, last week I received an email from Kate letting me know in the subject line – “you’re invited…” What a hook!

Fast forward to last night: I can honestly say that this was one of the first times that being on a company’s email list really, really paid off. Party dresses, shiny stilettos, fall purses, sparkling lemonade, macaroons, and my favorite SF bloggers – such a fabulous way to spend a Thursday night. PLUS I met two bloggers (Lauren of live happy inspired and Em of The Refined Woman), whose sites were very instrumental in the process of getting Lovely Letters started. Yes, I freaked them out with my reaction to their presence but they handled it like the graceful women they are.

And so, I’d just like to say, “Welcome back, Kate! You were sorely missed, but your comeback party was a treat.”

xx Katie

  1. ‘with our blogging powers combined!’ (captain planet anyone?) this whole post is a success story. well, except for maybe the PG-13 that I added in our group shot. you even managed to make Kate’s vases fit in better than they did in the store!

    but, seriously. that outfit will never look as good as that polka dot beauty makes it. dear husband..

  2. You all look like a Kate Spade ad. Pretty perfect with the outfits (Annie does need that clutch) and happy faces. Miss Letters, you have quite the eye for photo taking! Now that’s a fun invitation to receive for certain!

  3. This looks like such a great event! You look great in red! I wish a money tree was growing in my backyard so I could purchase all of these beautiful pieces from Kate this fall! I LOVE that bow clutch! Hope you had a great evening out with the girls! XO
